    Well, the longest I've waited was 27 years. That was with 120 Plus-X, and I did still get recognizable images. The camera containing the roll was stored in a closet here in southeastern PA, in a house with no air conditioning for the first 19 or so of those years. I wouldn't recommend going that long, but I wouldn't give a second thought to waiting several weeks. I would pass on refrigeration as just another opportunity to screw something up with condensation, since the rolls are no longer factory sealed.

    I have a preference for keeping films, especially exposed films, in something that will protect them from bright light and sudden climate changes -- say a Zip-Loc bag inside a camera bag or luggage tote. That's not based on any prior bad experiences, just a general predisposition toward caution.

    And I second the recommendation to mark rolls and keep some notes, although I'm not one of those who amasses five dozen rolls before I do something with them.

    Yes, I have lots of 35mm, but I recently actually purchased some 120 containers from Freestyle, as none of the 120 film I've bought had anything but sealed foil. I especially like the idea of opaque black containers which the 35mm makers seem to have moved away from. Heh, I remember metal cans for 35mm!
